He was a strong and wise man, and spent all his days being a great father and an amazing grandfather. Aside from his wisdom, his wits are what made him.

We love you and miss you.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Mark Heath; and a sister, Mary Alice Heath.

McPherson; 7 grandchildren, Alexya Thomas, Abigail Dodson, Mark Dodson, Kathryn Dodson, Gabriel Fox, Allie Fox and Stephen Linton; 2 brothers, Dale Heath and Alan Heath; 2 sisters, April Bruck and Christa Grant.
